Re: 4 cacti for ID

1) seems to be one of those Trichocereus-hybrids that are sold in big-box stores. Could be a Pilosocereus, but I think not.

Re: Need an id on these new cacti

The gymno is probably G. Pflanzii, definitely not G. saglionis.

Re: Hello

seems to be an E. trigona;
These root easily in soil. You might be able to root it in water, but it can only increase the chances for rot I fear.
